My experience on Win2K with this program was bad. This may be a warning to some - have a ghost or rollback ready before installing Sonic. I got it free with a DVD burner. Upon installation and reboot, I got a BSOD. I had to boot into safe mode and manually repair the 2K installation. A simple uninstall wouldn't do - it was necessary to go through the registry and laboriously strip out all references to Sonic and related drivers. I hadn't stored a ghost image for a month or so, and there had been a lot of changes, so this was less time-consuming than reinstalling the OS and apps.

I'm using DVD Architect 1 now, and it pretty much sucks but it works okay for burning movies, not so okay for authoring. Currently scouting for a better program.

Really! I'm using win2k also with SP4 and had no problems with it. Ulead DVD workshop on the other hand was. No matter how close I set the bit rate to the original movie I would still go out of sync somewhere down the line. The Prelinger shorts were even worse. DVDit seemed to solve all problems using PCM convert for the shorts and Dolby 2/channel for the features, hmmm, enteresting...

I'm a big fan of using DVDLab. Especially since the content has already been converted to MPEG-2.
